Formed her first band in 2004 singing rock covers and was part of other bands with the same profile, like the band Tanin. She participated in musical plays such as “A Ópera do Malandro” and tribute  bands such as Dio / Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden but they never really took off. In 2012 she participated as a backing vocal in the album “Unfold” by the band Almah, an invitation from the singer Edu Falaschi. In the following years, indicated by the guitarist and producer Thiago Oliveira, she participated as a singer in charity and fundraising events, where she met the producer Luiz Portinari who would, in the future, reffer her to audition for Megaira, the band which she is currently a vocalist.

Paulo Melo

His first contact with  music happened in the year of 1998, taking private lessons of popular guitar and electric guitar with the musician Gerson Junior. After a short period playing in cover bands, from 2000 to 2003 he began to study Classical Guitar and musical theory at São Bernardo do Campo’s Conservatory and also taking private lessons with the musician Joel Galmacci. In 2001 he joined the band Esdrelon as guitarist where he met Cristian Araújo (also a guitarist) and vocalist Paulo Schimdt, musicians who would, a few years later, form the band Megaira. From 2004 to 2006 he studied classical guitar and musical theory at Fundação das Artes (Foundation of Arts) in São Caetano do Sul and from 2007 to 2009 he studied electric guitar with the musician Marcelo Naudi. In 2009 he formed the band Megaira, which he dedicates himself exclusively to the present day, along with a former member of Esdrelon, Paulo Schimdt.

Paulo Schmidt

He began his career in 1990 as a vocalist in Heavy Metal cover bands and began to study singing with the teacher Marisa Serrano. Later he formed the bands Ilusion, which played both: covers and their own compistions, and Wasted Land, with original songs only. In 2000 he formed the band Cenotaph with guitarist Cristian Araújo, which would later become Esdrelon, a Thrash Metal band, with the entry of current Megaira’s guitarist Paulo Melo. This formation worked for some years playing with bands  like Thuata de Dannan, Torture Squad, Necromancia, among others,  in the State of São Paulo. A few years later he was invited by the founders of Megaira Paulo Melo and Cristian Araújo to take on the vocals of the band, which he dedicates himself exclusively to the present day.

Tiago Souza

He started his musical career as a bass player in 2000 and began practicing with a band of friends for a few years. In mid-2006, he joined the band Drayhen, a Traditional Metal / Power Metal band, which rehearsed in a studio in São Bernardo do Campo (São Paulo-Brazil), which by coincidence Megaria also rehearsed, and soon there was the opportunity to audition for the band. In 2010 he joined the Queen Plebe (Rainha Plebe), a band with traditional metal influences, with Portuguese lyrics.

The career was developing with the three bands for a while, but Drayhen ended up finishing its activities. In 2013 he resumed his electric bass studies with Fabio Senna, and about the same period the band Queen Plebe  broke up, turning him from that point on, an exclusive member of Megaira.
